How to Reset the Parental Passcode on My iTouch

The iPod Touch allows parents to restrict access to certain websites, browsers and applications. To bypass these parental restrictions, the user of the iPod Touch must enter a password. The user can change this password at any time, provided he has the existing password. However, if the user forgets the password, he'll have to restore his iPod Touch to its factory settings before he is able to reset the parental password.
